    The aim of the study was to establish bronchial inflammation status and to measure eicosanoids in sputum obtained from active elite athletes. A total of 68 subjects were enrolled. Twelve were non-athletes and non-asthmatic (NAtNAs), 21 non-athlete asthmatics (NAtAs), 11 athlete non-asthmatics...

    Objective: To establish reference values for cellularity in induced sputum samples collected from healthy adults. Methods: Induced sputum samples were obtained from 88 healthy adult never-smokers (39 males). The mean age was 36 years (range, 18-68 years). The participants had been residing in...

    Eosinophilic bronchitis is an essential component of bronchial asthma, and eosinophils play an important role. We studied the effect of eosinophils on cell surface plasmin generation by bronchial epithelial cells, because plasmin is thought to be involved in bronchial tissue repair/remodeling by...

    BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic bronchitis is a condition characterised by a corticosteroid responsive cough, sputum eosinophilia, and normal tests of variable airflow obstruction and airway responsiveness. We performed a detailed comparative immunopathological study to test the hypothesis that the...
